Over the years we’ve been treated to a lot of reasons why we’re not supposed to use illegal drugs, though most of those reasons are pretty damn silly. The most recent spate of cheesily-animated anti-pot ads are even trying to suggest that marijuana is addictive. It’s not.
And of course Nancy Reagan, wife of useless (and now dead*) president Ronald Reagan, coined the “Just Say No” phrase, which probably stands as a high-water mark in the history of cortex-free attempts at social engineering.
But I think I’ve finally hit upon the very best reason not to use hard drugs ever.
“The strangest thing I’ve tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father,” [Stones guitarist Keith] Richards was quoted as saying by British music magazine NME.
I’ve never really felt tempted to use cocaine. Given the foregoing, that lack of temptation has become considerably more like ewwwww, fuck no.
* Thus, slightly more useful now.
